Anticipation! Busy September for reWORKit: website and project launches.

reWORKit has been pretty quiet pub­licly for the last few months, but that’s not because I’ve been at the beach all sum­mer sip­ping Mar­gar­i­tas. It’s been a fun, but also very pro­duc­tive, nose-to-the-grindstone kind of sum­mer and it’s about to bear fruit! At the risk of over-horn toot­ing, here’s what’s com­ing down the pipeline. Keep an […]

Walmart Strike! Links to background, analysis and action

    The Decem­ber 23rd Black Fri­day Wal­mart strike in the US is about dig­nity and fair­ness for Wal­mart work­ers and an end to Wal­mart retal­i­a­tion when they speak out for those rea­son­able and just demands.  It is infor­mal and decen­tral­ized, yet has proven to be excep­tion­ally effec­tive — per­haps for those very rea­sons.
